Digital Nirvana Highlights Media Transport Solution MonitorIQ

Digital Nirvana will show its newest media management solutions including MonitorIQ, the CAR/TS (Capture, Analyze, Replay – Transport Stream) transport stream recorder, as well as closed captioning solutions.

The latest version of Digital Nirvana's flagship MonitorIQ media management platform delivers a full range of multi-channel signal monitoring, repurposing, logging, compliance and archiving functions.

Version 5.0 features cloud-based recording and OTT stream monitoring functions with a user-friendly interface. It also includes HTML5 and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) support, and incorporates the ability to record from Matrox's Monarch HDX streaming appliance.

For content creators not requiring the full scope of broadcast media management tools offered through the MonitorIQ platform, Digital Nirvana also offers stand-alone media management solutions, including its cloud-based OTT monitoring solution, AnyStreamIQ. The solution records and monitors streamed media to prove web captioning compliance and “proof of airing” for advertisers. The showcase will also include a stand-alone content repurposing solution called MediaPro, which enables users to easily record content to quickly cut, clip and share with social media and the cloud.

“Our mission has always been to empower users with innovative media management technologies, and we’ll be introducing some new solutions to the market that will help make our customers’ jobs and operations easier and more streamlined.”
Hiren Hindocha, President and CEO, Digital Nirvana

Another item on exhibit is the CAR/TS transport stream recorder. First introduced last year, CAR/TS records and monitors the transport stream and provides alerts on non-compliance, allowing users to cut segments and export sections of the transport stream for more detailed analysis. The solution also offers time-shifted playout for multiple time zone broadcasts and a disaster recovery solution for keeping a broadcaster’s signal on-air with recorded content.

The company will also showcase its Repeat Audio Detection (RAD) technology, which monitors multiple radio stations and TV channels. The RAD systems dynamically detect when a fingerprinted audio clip is played, and log the name of the station that played the clip and the exact time the clip was played.

Digital Nirvana’s Services House will also demo its close captioning offerings at NAB, including automated cloud-based closed captioning generation and synchronization services. The company offers caption generation for all pre-recorded and online video content through an automated process over the cloud, with options to create multiple formats and integrate directly to the user’s video platform.

The caption synchronization service uses audio fingerprinting to automatically detect and retime captions in a near-live timeframe to enable repurposing of live broadcast captions for online delivery. The service comes with a whole suite of options for clipping, data transfer, caption formats and integrations and more.
